See worn and tattered map for traits.

Usage and example

Map markings are unique to each map; below is one example.

  • RUB:You smooth some of the wrinkles on the map as you pore over it, searching for meaning.
  • TURN: You rotate the tattered map, examining it from a different perspective.
  • READ: The map has a large 'X' marked in the middle of it. Near the marking, you can see several dotted lines forming a square. Contour lines drawn along the map indicate that the destination is located near sea level, and a simple sketch of several buildings surrounds the 'X'. Straight lines have been drawn from the center, pointing north and southwest. From other markings on the map, you guess that the destination is directly east of here. Judging by your surrounding environment, you will find the treasure in this province.
    [If you think you've found the treasure, you can STUDY the map to see.]
  • STUDY: Used to claim the treasure when you are on the correct spot. Otherwise, will display the map description as with READ.

Meaning of Markings

Note that if properly set up, the maps will not lead to any premium or guild/race-restricted areas.
